Gronky

adjective;
Used to describe an uncomfortable physical ailment or social situation that has an associated feeling of heat or redness. Origin & Source: My mother heard this word in a dream once, and claims in the dream it seemed to her to be an onomatopoeia for the color red and its associated heat. The dream occurred when I was very little—2 or 3—and the word has been in my family and our circle of friends ever since. I guess that makes it more of a domologism6 than a neologism, but I think it still counts. Example: “I asked him to Esperanza and he when said he already had a date, I got this horrible gronky feeling in the back of my neck and ran away without even saying goodbye.”
 
I got out of bed this morning and felt utterly gronky: my head throbbed, I was sweating, and when I checked my face was flushed and I had a fever of 101.”
